UBS's 177 new managing directors contain few people from Credit Suisse

UBS's lucky new managing directors were informed of their promotions last week, but the Swiss bank has only just made the full list of the 177 fortunate people publicly available. We've listed them all below, along with their locations and job titles, where possible.

Following complaints from UBS people that Credit Suisse incomers were favoured in some departments, the list suggests that on the whole, this wasn't the case. By our reckoning, only around 30 of the new managing directors, or 17% of the total, came from Credit Suisse in last year's merger. Many more have, however, worked for Credit Suisse at some point in their careers.

Even without the addition of 40,000 new people from Credit Suisse, 177 people is a small MD class. In 2021, UBS promoted 208 managing directors.  In 2022, it promoted 183. 

UBS insiders say the absence of ex-Credit Suisse people among the new MDs is a reflection of the fact that very few Credit Suisse directors moved across. 

The Credit Suisse people who were promoted are mostly in the US. They include: Adam Baer in technology M&A; Angelica Nikolausson in ESG financing; Furhaan Khan in internet investment banking; and Michael D'Onofrio in financial sponsors leveraged finance. 

There's a notable absence of Credit Suisse promotions in the markets business. However, NY-based emerging markets trader Joseph Cohen is on the list, as is Octávio Bernardes in LatAm derivatives trading and Weigang Yuan, Credit Suisse's former global co-head of structured rates trading.

The paucity of people making MD at UBS this year follows a bonus round tinged with disappointment and cuts to managing directors in the investment bank in late January.
